About UK Lotto
UK Lotto, the country’s own lottery game, was first launched in 1994 as the National Lottery but was rebranded as ‘Lotto’ in 2002 and has continued operating under that name ever since. Since its launch, the game has created countless millionaires while raising millions of pounds each week for a wide variety of good causes across the UK.
Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday evening and a total of seven numbers are randomly drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 to 59. The first six are the main numbers and the seventh is the Bonus Ball. Players are required to select six numbers from the range of 1 to 59 and any player(s) who match the six main numbers drawn will win the jackpot. In the event that more than one ticket holder successfully matches all six main numbers, then the top prize is shared equally amongst the ticket holders.
UK Lotto Games
While UK Lotto remains a popular choice for many British lottery fans, there are other fun games they can enjoy. The most famous of these is EuroMillions, a pan-European lottery game which takes place every Tuesday and Friday evening and boasts a starting jackpot of €17 million (approximately £14 million depending on the exchange rate).
Thunderball is a another popular UK Lotto game, which requires players to select five main numbers from the range 1 to 39 and one Thunderball from the range 1 to 14. The top prize is £500,000, with other prizes available worth between £3 for matching the Thunderball and £5,000 for matching the five main numbers drawn.
Lotto Millionaire Raffle is an additional game played alongside Lotto which offers one prize of £1 million and 20 additional prizes of £20,000 in every Lotto draw. Players who buy Lotto tickets are automatically entered into the game, earning one Lotto Millionaire Raffle code for every Lotto line they purchase.
UK Lotto Tickets
UK Lotto tickets are available to purchase both online or in person at an authorised retailer. Buying tickets online not only saves time but has a number of benefits including the security of having your ticket stored securely online, the ability to purchase tickets up to eight weeks in advance and automatic checking of your numbers against the balls drawn with email notification if you win a prize.
